What can I say? I know what I like to do with only 80 days left until the Broncos get after the footy ball thing again. I like to hear about—Cedrick Wilson!

How'd he get to the Blue™?
After high school Mr. Wilson went the junior college route where he had quite the successful career at Coffeyville (more on that later). He then was pursued by mostly southern schools: Arkansas State, Middle Tennessee State, Southern Mississippi, and—of course—Virginia Tech. But sometimes the bigger schools jump in too little, too late, and are not able to make the flip. Boise State was able to hold on to Mr. Wilson and he signed in December ‘16 as a mid-year transfer. He joined the Broncos in January for spring ball.
I don’t know. I feel as though if I had a last name that started with a “W” I would insist on some iteration of the “Dub” name.
Woops. Wrong Cedrick.
How about this one.
Former NFL player Cedrick Wilson. Seems legit.
Mr. Wilson came out of high school playing the quarterback position. In his senior year he helped lead the Spartans to the 6A State semifinals. He was also added to the Tennessee Sports Writers Association 6A All-State Team and 16-AAA All-District Second Team. During his junior college years he was named all-conference his freshman year and a NJCAA All-American. How did he get to the NJCAA All-American Status? By nabbing 66 passes and 1,045 receiving yards, not to mention 17 touchdowns. The kid really came into his own!
The Broncos went out and got some immediate help at wide receiver. By adding Wilson, they got some length who can go get the ball. Wilson, Brock Barr and Garrett Collingham (he must have switched from QB) are the only receivers on the spring roster that are 6’ 3” or taller. Thomas Sperbeck and Chaz Anderson are going to be targets one and two. Mr. Wilson already has the look to be a very good number three.
This is especially compounded by the fact that Wilson was getting reps with the starting offense in the spring scrimmage. If Mr. Wilson can keep the momentum from his juco time going, and Brett Rypien can keep dropping dimes, we should be seeing some great fireworks next year.
Is he on Twitter?
I'm pretty fond of Boise too Mr. Wilson!
Completely made up fact
Cedrick Wilson is an accomplished accordion player. He will often “pump up" the locker room with traditional polkas. Catch him in the right mood, he may even play for you!
